Feeding a Multitude

At least, we had enough food this weekend to do just that. My husband graduated from medical school, and we had plenty of family on hand to help us celebrate. Last week was filled with cooking and baking preparations so we'd be able to avoid going out to restaurants and dealing with all of those logistics. It was enough to try to get everyone transported to and from the graduation events! But, we had a wonderful time, and it was great to see some family that (a) we hadn't seen in a while, (b) we have never met, and (c) could help me out in the kitchen! :) I made Indiana Garden Salad, Chinese Noodle Salad, Banana Bread, Sausage Balls, KFC Clone Coleslaw, and lots of other yummy stuff. I'll post the recipe for the sausage balls later this week (they're super easy and get better the longer they sit). For now, here's the recipe for the KFC Clone Coleslaw. I can't remember the website from where I retrieved it, but we thought it was pretty close to the Colonel's. I think I would add a bit more pepper, but that's it.

KFC Coleslaw Clone Recipe

8 1/2 cups chopped cabbage
1/3 cup shredded carrot
1 tsp. onion, chopped fine
3/4 cup buttermilk (can substitute 1 tsp. white vinegar + 3/4 cup regular milk)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/8 cup milk
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/3 cup granulated sugar

Mix cabbage, carrot, and onion. Whisk together all dressing ingredients except salt, pepper, & sugar and mix well. Add the salt and pepper; stir. Add the sugar and whisk until well-mixed. Pour dressing over cabbage and carrots and refrigerate overnight.

The secret ingredient in KFC Coleslaw is tarragon vinegar. If you find a clone recipe with that ingredient, it'll be much closer. Something like this, perhaps:
